Open Quote This school is the worst I've ever met in my life. Most of the teacher does not care about safety of children, especially substitute teacher. My daughter had a substitute teacher who spent talking on the cell rather than teach. The school does nothing for children who are bullying. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
